3.2/5  rDev +22.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Appearance: Fairly standard lager gold, not as light as I'd expect it to be. Good carbonation in the body and it produced a finger of head that didn't lace and barely retained.

Smell: Average and if it weren't a light beer it would be scored lower. Straw like malt, a touch of earthy hops that comes off a bit mossy because of a slight undertone of skunk. Not bad, nothing great and stronger then most light beers.

Taste: Pretty much standard macro lager taste. Hay like malt with a touch of corn, that turns into a slight touch of earthy hops. Once again, not bad for a light beer, but nothing to write home about and it may come off as watery to some.

Mouthfeel: Well the carbonation is done well that the transitioning is smooth, but it does cloy a little bit too much. I'd give it 3.25 if I could, but it falls on the lower end of the scale, mainly because of my earlier generosity.

Drinkability: This beer fairs very well as a guzzler, and it's really designed for hot summer days. No issues getting it down, no issues with gas or bloating and refreshing in extreme.

Final Thoughts: Well, this one fared far better then I thought it would, and I did enjoy it more the Moosehead Light, mainly because it seems simpler and not just a watered down version of Moosehead. Still, there are many better beers out there, so save your money on this one.

For what this beer is; being low in alcohol and calories; it has a surprisingly amount of good flavour. This must be due to the fact that the beer is slow-brewed. I would drink this beer over any other light beer as it has more flavour and you can casually drink a few of these and still be drinking something with some flavour.

Cracked Canoe is a premium light lager that has a crisp, clean finish. It's light color and taste make it easy to drink. I sometimes add a lime to it and love drinking it on the boat in the summer time.

Give it a try if you like light tasting beer / low cal.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Cracked Canoe is a 3.5% ABV refreshing beverage with all of the taste of a 5% lager, but only 90 calories and less of the alcohol content. I enjoyed the CC I had at lunch the other day, because I was able to come back to work clear headed. I think the packaging is very tasteful, and the beer was easy to drink, and had the full flavour I like in a lager beer.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

473ml can poured into a pint glass. ABV 3.5%.

A - Poured a very pale yellow with a 2cm white head. Head slowly reduce to a thin cap. Some lacing.

S - Very light bread aroma and not much else.

T - Water, very light taste of grains and light hint grass.

M - Watery, light carbonation, clean dry finish.

O - Light beer in every way. Easy to drink only because of it's inoffensive blandness.
